RIP Marvin Rainwater. 
I visited him at his house in Minnesota when he was in his early 80s and he was still writing songs and pulling tree stumps out of the ground - looked like he had another 20 years in him at least. One of his many memorable quotes that day: &#8220;Back when I had my big hits I thought I&#8217;d invented music&#8230; And fucking.&#8221; 
This is one of my photographs of him from that day.
And in case you need a refresher course:
Mr. Blues
Whole Lotta Woman
Tough Top Cat

RIP Marvin Rainwater.

I visited him at his house in Minnesota when he was in his early 80s and he was still writing songs and pulling tree stumps out of the ground - looked like he had another 20 years in him at least. One of his many memorable quotes that day: “Back when I had my big hits I thought I’d invented music… And fucking.”

This is one of my photographs of him from that day.

And in case you need a refresher course:

Mr. Blues

Whole Lotta Woman
